Insects Invade Alamo Campus
On January 8, 2014 the Dorris Eaton preschool hosted it's first cultural enrichment event for the year. The students and teachers at the Alamo campus welcomed SaveNature.org's Insect Discovery Lab.
During the fun-filled presentations, students got to touch and hold amazing arthropods from around the world including: Australian walking sticks, an African millipede, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, and beetles. The Insect Discovery Lab's ambassador, Tanya, captivated her mesmerized audience by passing around the insects, so that the children and teachers could touch and experience each one of them. In addition to interacting with the arthropods, the children learned how to identify each insect and its arthropod relatives. Tanya also explained and demonstrated to the children how the different insects defend themselves against their predators. All the students seemed to enjoy this fun and educational experience!
